NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Eighty-year old Pro Football Hall of Famer Dick LeBeau is out as defensive coordinator for the Titans, sources tell me.

LeBeau joined the Titans in 2015. He allowed protégée Ray Horton, who was already in position, to call the defense that year.

But he took over the following year when Mike Mularkey became the head coach.

The Titans were 20th in yardage defense in 2016 and improved to 13th in 2017.

The storied LeBeau played at Ohio State and was a Detroit cornerback from 1959-1972.

He coached with the Eagles, Packers, Bengals, Steelers and Bills as well as the Titans. He was head coach in Cincinnati 2000-02.
